Systemic Change efforts not a new reality for the four Canadian branches of the North American Sisters of Charity Federation. Since 2008, the Sisters of Charity Federation Maritime Project has been advocating for women and children with a focus on safe, affordable housing and adequate social assistance. The committee also advocates for working persons living in poverty. It is an initiative of the four Canadian-based members of the North American SC Federation:
- Sisters of Charity of Halifax, Nova Scotia;
- Sisters of St. Martha (Antigonish, N.S.);
- Religieuses de Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Coeur (Moncton, New Brunswick)
- Sisters of Charity of the Immaculate Conception (Saint John, N.B.).
The committee is mandated by the four leadership teams and reports to the SC Federation. It also participates in Vincentian Family gatherings and initiatives advocating for systemic change. The SC Federation belongs to the worldwide, intergenerational Vincentian Family.
